First 20 seconds of Fire
This is a great show from a great year. Lots of good songs (Playin', GTRFB), but the Scarlet > Fire transition gets ben every time, especially right when they drop into Fire. Charlie cut is just before that, so listen to the beginning of Fire here.
I lived in Milwaukee at this time and saw the next two nights after this. Those were super, but I really wish I had gotten tickets to this night!
It's too bad that a cleaner soundboard has not come out of this show - Charlie does his best with what he has I'm sure, but this is a very muddy sound.

4,5,6, pickin' up stix!
These were shows 4,5,and 6 for me. I was just a kid and ignorant about a whole lot of stuff, even though back then it seemed I knew so much more than I do now. I stumbled upon the Dead and THEIR sound in late June 1986 at the age of 19. It was no wonder that I decided to continue the journey FURTHUR with the Grateful Dead and the many people I met at the various venues, campgrounds, airports, bus terminals,etc. After listening to this show again for the first time in 25+ years,I can hear why. Incidently, though this was my fourth show, it was my first one without any psychedelics, and I discovered, to my amazement, that being dosed was not necessarily necessary. What wisdom for a 20 year old Deadhead newbie to possess!!! 5 stars from an ol' softie!!!:-)

The "El" shows
What the heck; I'll be the first review. These were the first shows I took my fiance to (now my wife of 22 years) . We rode the "El" around Chicago for 3 days living in a dream. Not the greatest shows ever in the history of the Dead, but they were starting to get their groove back after a rather rocky '86.
